French Toast With Caramelized Apples

Sometimes I like to surprise the family on weekend mornings with this tasty meal and it all begins with the bread. I opt for the soft and buttery Artesano bread, but I find Bricohe to be a great option as well. It only gets better when I top my tasty French toast off with caramelized apples that have been simmering in butter, spices, and brown sugar.

Making this recipe is fairly straighforward. Begin by combining the French toast ingredients into a large bowl and whisking until smooth. Once you dip your bread slices into the egg mixture on both sides, cook each side in a skillet (cast iron if you have one) until it’s golden brown. Making the caramelized apples does require some patience so take your time. Allowing the ingredients time to bind and create that decadent sauce is the best part of this recipe.

When you want to treat your family and yourself to a great tasting breakfast give this French Toast with Caramelized Apples recipe a spot on your table and I can promise you will not regret it. Check out the video below where I take you step-by-step and show you how to make this French toast:
